Our retail offering
Stevenage has a number of distinct shopping areas including the Roaring Meg, Town Centre, Leisure Park and the Old Town, each of which offer a range of different brands and amenities to suit all retail and leisure needs.
While the national retail market has suffered over the past decade, shopping in Stevenage has remained robust with new additions arriving to the town on a regular basis. In the past few months we’ve welcomed Starbucks, Pandora and Debenhams to Stevenage, with many more to follow as part of the regeneration programme.
Stevenage is home to a range of major brands including:
Leisure facilities for all ages
The major, £1bn regeneration programme that we have recently launched will introduce a range of new brands and leisure outlets to the town’s central areas.
On top of the retailers currently based here that are listed above, Stevenage also offers a range of leisure facilities including Hollywood Bowl, Cineworld – including one of 21 ‘4DX’ cinemas in the UK, Lost World Golf and much more.
Shopping in Stevenage – the future
The wider regeneration project is aligned with studies like ‘The Grimsey Review’ that governing bodies to deliver ‘mixed-use’ schemes with a combination of retail, commercial, residential and leisure facilities occupying central areas, naturally leading to a greater demand for services, retailers and more from the larger population of people living and working within our town centre.
In addition to the 1100 new homes built by 2021 and the introduction of new leisure facilities we will also be introducing new retail and food and beverage brands to the town with the first being introduced as part of the Town Square North Block project.
